While women are more likely to choose some form of cosmetic intervention, the idea is catching on with men. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the top five male cosmetic surgical procedures in 2008 were nose reshaping; eyelid surgery; liposuction; gynecomastia or male breast reduction surgery; and hair transplantation. At the Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Paramus, NJ we’re seeing a somewhat different preference order. Here, the most popular elective procedure for our male patients is liposuction. Target areas are love handles, saddle bags, or excess abdominal skin caused by dramatic weight loss. Bariatric surgeons often refer their patients to New Jersey’s Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery for post-surgical liposuction in this area once the patient’s weight loss has stabilized, as the final transformational step. Liposuction is an excellent option to sculpt, shape and tone the body, creating a harmony and balance in the trunk area that only a lucky few are born with.
The second most popular plastic surgery procedure for men at the Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Paramus, NJ is gynecomastia. This surgery appeals to men of all ages with enlarged breasts, from teenagers, to seniors, who no longer want to suffer embarrassment and ridicule. Often, they go to great lengths to conceal their chest, foregoing beach parties or sports events, such as swimming, that requires them to go topless. Gynecomastia, is a very straightforward procedure, and when performed by a skilledboard-certified plastic surgeon, can produce life changing results in terms of self-confidence and quality of life.
Finally, our male patients are requesting blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery. In today’s competitive dating and job markets men are catching on to the fact that the more desirable ageless appearance is easily obtained through eyelid surgery.
